Korean fried chicken has come to Howard County -- through a Mad for Chicken franchise inside the Tian Chinese Cuisine in Ellicott City.
I couldn't run out yesterday, but Hanah saw the post and ordered some takeout. She reports on the chicken, the crispiness and the glaze:
Over the years, I've had my taste of Bon Chon and other varieties of Korean fried chicken. So I was excited to learn through HowChow that I could get my chicken fix just several miles from my home.
The Mad for Chicken at Tian Chinese Cuisine didn't disappoint. The outside was crispy and light while the meat inside was moist. The garlic spicy glaze had just the right amount of garlic. The sweet radish which comes with the order provided a nice balance to the spice. Even my husband who is not a big fried chicken eater enjoyed Mad for Chicken.
Since they fry the chicken in-house, order at least 25 minutes ahead for take out. I ordered the 20-piece wings, which at $17 is cheaper than Bon Chon. I hope you get a chance to get it out soon.
